PITCHFORK POST: Avoid The Lines, Maximize Your Game Day Experience
All 71,706 Sun Devil faithful will be Blacking Out The Duck on Thursday night at 6 p.m., so be sure to get to Sun Devil Stadium early to make sure you don't miss any of the action. Good tickets are still available throughout the stadium, including lower bowl and loge tickets.
Tickets can be purchased at TheSunDevils.com, the Arizona State Ticket Office outside of the Carson Student-Athlete Center, or by phone at 480-727-0000.
With the game being nationally televised on ESPN, kickoff will be at precisely 6:01 p.m. Plan accordingly and get there early to alleviate traffic and beat the crowds.
"This is a mid-week game and with a 6 p.m. kickoff, it is a full hour and 30 minutes earlier than our normal home games," said Rocky Harris, Sr. Associate AD for External Relations. "We need our fans to pack Sun Devil Stadium early and show the national ESPN audience what home field advantage in Tempe is all about."
Remember to wear BLACK and don't miss the Devil Walk, which starts at 3:30 pm inside Wells Fargo Arena. The four Ring of Honor inductees will be signing autographs after Devil Walk. Doors to the stadium open at 4:30 p.m., so get there early to ensure a great seat and show the national ESPN audience our Sun Devil Pride.
ADOT is urging fans to consider using the light rail and alternate freeway routes, and to check on freeway conditions via ADOT's 5-1-1 Travel Information site ( www.az511.gov) or call 5-1-1.
